What is a construct? What is a measure? Discuss different levels of measures and give examples in your description. Pick a construct and describe that construct in detail. Next, find two research articles from peer reviewed journals studying that construct. You are to find actual research studies talking about the construct, not review articles for measures.
For example, here is an article ABOUT a measure: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF00917219 (This is not the full text of the article)
This is an article that USES measures in a study: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/article-abstract/494134 (This is not the full text of the article.)
(You want to look for articles that USE measures in a study. Please ask if you don’t understand the difference.)
Include the references for those articles and a link to the articles. What specific measures were used in each study? If you were conducting your own study, which one (if either) would you use and why?

Follow directions carefully. Read the chapters and watch any videos attached. Your original post must be a minimum of 150 words. Use correct grammar and spelling. Write in paragraph form do not just list. You must reply to two different students. Your post must be submitted by Saturday. The post and each of the two replies should be submitted on three different days. The discussion board will close on Wednesday. Post and replies should show your mastery of the subject. If you use material from an outside source, provide the documentation from which the information was obtained. Do not cite unconfirmed or inaccurate information (like blogs, personal pages, Wikipedia, etc.). The post should contain your own words and thoughts. Cited material does not count toward your word count. Be respectful of other people’s ideas and beliefs. Do not state the same things that others have said in your replies. The idea is that your post and replies should add value to the discussion. Do not submit your work as an attachment. Answer all parts of the assignment but do not retype the questions in your post. Do not submit more than one post. Do not include a chapter summary unless asked to do so. Do not submit blank posts.
Well, well, well…here we are on the chapter on Stress and Health Psychology right as the semester is winding down. Also, this chapter will be useful for the project. It is important to understand that the mind and body are connected. If you are stressed out both your body and mind will suffer. Think about it…when you are stressed do your sleeping and eating habits change? The text will discuss many ways in which your health is compromised by stress. Is stress ever a good thing? It will also talk about how your personality may play into that as well. In particular, it will look at Type A and Type B personalities. Type A personalities are go-getters. They get things done. They make lists and cross things off. They make a schedule and stick to it. They start working on assignments early. They are detailed oriented. Type B personalities are easy-going and relaxed. They are less conscious of time. They are less competitive. They are more flexible. Which do you think you are right now?
Now, take the short test in the chapter resources.
What did you find out? In most relationships, one person is more Type A and the other Type B? Think of your own life and the people you know. Do you find that to be the case? Why would it be that Type A and Type B people pair up together? Now, if you are a Type A, what can you do to reduce your stress in the future? If you are a Type B, what suggestions could you make to a Type A to help them reduce their stress? Those who are more Type B tend to procrastinate. Putting things off to the last minute can cause undue stress. What suggestions do the Type A people have for the Type Bs to help them plan ahead?

Nature and nurture are complex forces that interact to shape development and human
1. Biological origins of aggression: From what you saw in the video are humans biologically pre-
wired for aggression? Why or why not? How is temperament linked with aggression? What
adaptive and maladaptive functions does aggression serve?
2. Social origins of aggression: The environment also plays a major role in shaping our
aggressive behavior. What are the most important environmental, social, and cultural variables
that shape the development of aggression? According to the documentary what pregnancy
conditions or early life experiences can negatively alter brain development in childhood?
3. Lifespan development: What did you learn about the results of longitudinal research on the
onset and development of aggressive behavior? At what lifespan period are we most
aggressive? Is there a sensitive period (age range) during which this socialization must take
place? Should we expose people to anti-aggression interventions during adolescence or early
childhood? Why?
4. The significance of the social group: How does anger and aggression evolve into
cooperation? What role does the social group play in this process of developing violence and
aggression? What social psychological concepts are relevant to understanding the role of
socialization in learning to regulate aggressive impulses?
5. Neuroscience, emotion regulation, and the rehabilitation of violent offenders: What did
you learn about the neuroscience of brain development and emotion regulation? If a child is
not able to have the necessary socialization experiences that help to facilitate emotional
control and regulation, what impact will this have on his or her brain? Based on what you have
learned do you believe that violent adults can be rehabilitated? Support your answer with
examples from the documentary.
Part 2 – The Science of Interpersonal Attraction
Watch the following documentary about heterosexual interpersonal attraction. This video
focuses on the role of beauty and status in interpersonal attraction (50 min, 5 sec)

1.What have you learned about heterosexual attraction after viewing the documentary? Give
TWO SPECIFIC examples of social psychological concepts or theories that were exemplified in the video.
2. In the video you saw a woman who attempted to make herself more physically attractive.
What did she do to try to achieve the golden ratio? In real life do you see examples of the
Golden Ratio standard of beauty? Have you ever witnessed or experienced the Halo Effect?
Give examples.
3. What did you think about the “experiment” where Peter stands in the shop window? Did his clothing and appearance affect they way others viewed his status? Does this happen in real life? The evolutionary theory of attraction suggests that men place a higher priority on youth and physical attractiveness while women place a higher priority on status and financial
resources and that both of these strategies serve to maximize reproductive fitness. Do you
think the evolutionary theory plays out in real life examples of heterosexual romantic
attraction? Give examples.
4.While the documentary you watched provides insights into the evolutionary forces that shape heterosexual attraction, it does little to describe or explain homosexual attraction. Read the
following article about some recent published studies. https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-26089486
Then, in your own words, write one paragraph describing what you learned about evolution and homosexual attraction.
Part 3 – Helping Behavior In the helping chapter you learned about Darley & Latane’s model of helping behavior. In this section you will find, analyze, and discuss a real-life situation of helping behavior.
1. Begin by posting a link to an “event” where a person is in need. This might be a crime, a
situation where someone is being bullied, or a situation where someone is experiencing an
emergency, as in the Kitty Genovese case. This link should be to an article or video clip that clearly describes the facts surrounding the event. Next, write a one paragraph summary of the “event”.
2. Darley and Latane’s model suggests that we will help others only when we have completed
the following steps:
-Noticing the event or “emergency”
-Interpreting the situation as an “emergency” (a situation where immediate action or
assistance is necessary).
-Taking responsibility to help
You also learned about how the attributions we make for people’s behavior can absolutely
influence these steps in the model (e.g., if we see someone in scruffy clothing laying on the
sidewalk we might assume that’s “ordinary” because it is a homeless person, but if we see
someone in an expensive suit laying on the sidewalk we might assume that’s “out of the
ordinary” and that the person must have passed out or experienced a medical emergency.
Furthermore if we are in public and other people continuously walk past this person laying on the sidewalk this affects our interpretation of the event as well. In our heads we say “well if others didn’t stop surely this isn’t really an emergency”.
For this question, apply Darley and Latane’s model to your event.
-Did witnesses notice?
-Did they interpret the event as an emergency?
-Did anyone take responsibility for helping?
3. Did you see any evidence of the bystander effect or the diffusion of responsibility? Did you see any examples of informational social influence, conformity, or cognitive dissonance? Did you see any other relevant examples of concepts we discussed in the helping chapter (e.g., the empathy altruism hypothesis, the social responsibility norm, kin selection theory, etc.) in this real life event?

Question 1. Chapter 5 explores different types of learning, which includes class

Question 1. Chapter 5 explores different types of learning, which includes classical and operant conditioning, along with cognitive approaches to learning. A major perspective in cognitive approaches is observational learning. The author of your text asks a very important question that continues to be debated: Do the media’s messages matter when it comes to violence in TV and video games? For this week’s discussion, please discuss if observing violent, antisocial acts in the media lead viewers to behavior in similar ways? Please discuss your thoughts about observing repeated acts of violence through the media and its impact. What does some research have to say about this issue? How has witnessing violence through media impacted you over time?
Question 2. After reading chapter 6, sit down and think about all the things you have to store in your memory throughout the week. For your questions this week, answer the following. Choose one recent situation in which you forgot (and later remembered) something important. Describe it briefly. Then use one of the theories of forgetting to explain:
Why you forgot this?
What helped you remember it later?
How you could have avoided forgetting it?

The instructions are in the pdf attached below. However, to summarize it, you have to read an article and answer questions based on that reading. There is a rubric displaying marks for each question and overall format.
“Francesca” is the reading for the entire assignment.
For question 3, I tried to find some sources but could only find two. I have attached them below as “602” and “Hypnosis and diabetes”.
